Hellsing Ultimate 02

Hellsing Ultimate

Well.. this took quite some time to come out… but anyways, well worth the wait. I’m not going to post up screencaps though, the action isn’t as awe-inspiring as the first one, even though it’s still good. To put it in a simpler way, the action of the first one can be said as poetry in motion while this one was just purely blunt action and gorefest. Really, this show cannot survive without Alexander’s fanaticsm.

Anyways, this episode starts off with a flashback by Alucard on how he was defeated by someone, probably Van Hellsing and he wakes up from it, laughing it off. The Round Table is convening in the Hellsing Manor and meanwhile Walter, Ceras and Alucard are in the basement, checking out their new armaments in the form of Alucard’s new 13mm “handgun” and Ceras’s 30mm Halkonnen cannon. Man… they really have the coolest guns.

Outside, the Valentine brothers march up the entrance and take out the guards, initiating a full-scale invasion of the Hellsing Manor using the Ghoul army. They overpower the internal human security forces easily and all that’s left is to attack the meeting room. Yan Valentine leads the march up to the meeting room while the other brother, Luke heads off to face Alucard.

In front of the meeting room, Walter and Ceras face off the Ghoul army, and Walter shows off his 1337 _shinigami_ skills, while Ceras easily annihilates the Army with her Halkonnen. But a second wave of Ghouls appear, consisting of the previously human security forces of the Manor and Yan manages to invade in the meeting room but he is weakened greatly and goes down in a hail of bullets. Ceras is attacked by the Ghouls as she can’t bear attacking her ex-comrades and goes berserk after a while, defeating them.

The other Valentine brother (oh, how I pity him), faces off Alucard and seems to be in the upper hand, but Alucard releases his powers and easily defeats him, pissed off at his grovelling right before his death. Upstairs, Integra questions Yan who says he can’t reveal anything due to the chip in his head and explodes in flames, managing to utter the keyword, “Millenium” before being reduced to ashes. The episode ends with Integra guessing it’s Hitler and of her attending the funerals of her former security team.

True to their word, Hellsing Ultimate is following the manga exactly and it’s a joy to see such faithfulness to it’s original material as even the humourous scenes are kept exactly similar to it’s manga counterparts. This episode covers the manga’s Volume 2 chapters up to the 1st 10 pages of the 5th chapter, so the next OVA will be covering the parts of Integra’s meeting and Alucard’s trip to Brazil hopefully.

    This was so much better than the first episode. Alucard’s transformation has to be the best I’ve ever seen in vampire anime.
